The Wayland Baptist Flying Queens and their former coach, Harley Redin, have been nominated for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Both the Flying Queens – the all-time winningest program in women’s collegiate basketball – and Redin – who coached the team for 18 seasons and won six AAU national championships – are nominees of the Women’s Committee. It’s the first time the Flying Queens as a team will appear on the ballot, while Redin has been nominated previously.

Redin was an inaugural member of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tenn., in 1999. The Flying Queens of 1953-58, who won a record 131 consecutive games, were added to the WBHOF in 2013 as Trailblazers of the Game.

A press conference announcing the Finalists from the North American and Women’s committee for the Class of 2016 will be held at NBA All-Star Weekend, which is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 12 in Toronto, Canada. The entire Class of 2016, including those selected by the direct elect committees, will be unveiled Monday, April 4 at the Men’s NCAA Final Four in Houston.

Enshrinement festivities will take place in Springfield, Mass., Sept. 8-10, 2016.
